Opinions on weaponizers

Postby FellintoOblivion » Tue Oct 02, 2012 6:30 pm

I haven't been collecting the Prime toys but the weaponizers caught my eye due to their size and intricacy.

Are these guys worth the money? Is the weaponizer thing a gimmick or is it nicely integrated?
Looking for the Megatron gun (or just the stock) that came with 20th anniversary MP Optimus Prime.

I have Prime, and I think he rocks, solid figure!
The gun mechanism hides nicely, if you don't want it.
I think he is more in scale with the other bots, then the Voyager version.

He just needs some more weapons to be badassery.

only faults IMO, are the rear legs being visible from the back.

I think it's (prime) a really nice figure. I have him as the centre piece with my deluxe Autobots.

To reiterate what has been said, I have weaponizer Prime and I dig him. I also think he scales better with the Prime line than the voyager. There is some kibble in the back but I still think he looks nice. I don't intend on getting Bee so I have no input there.

From the reviews I thought Prime looked terrible and Bee looked good. When I saw Bee in person I thought he looked disappointing.

Robot kibble in vehicle mode?! Has that ever been done before?

This review might help clarify you about Prime.

Oh my.. To be honest, mine has never left robot mode. I wasn't even aware of the alt mode being that poor. Bah, robot mode is still solid in my book. I display the voyager in alt mode.

Okay, the back is just FUGLY. Even for a deluxe toy, this would be bad.

Strangely, I feel kind of happy, since now I can save my money for the truckload of MP cassetticons Takara's planned for next year.

Y U NO LOVE WEAPONIZER BUMBLEBEE?

He's fun to transform AND he look great in both modes. Sure, dont buy it if you care about scale. However, in a Bumblebee collection, this is a must.
